Pole under bed in Kingham

Post by Roywins on Wed Apr 12, 2017 1:19 pm

Picked up my new Kingham yesterday there is a steel pole painted in the same colour as the bed frame. Its  in three sections in a bag under the bed and its a bit like a tentpole. Can anyone tell me what its for please?

If you have an awning fitted, it may be a centre rafter?

Hello Roywins, just a wild guess on my part. If you have a roll out Thule Omnistore awning, could the pole be to locate centre of awning to prevent sagging of the material? We discovered a white two section pole in our used van that was unused and was not mentioned in the instructions. Seems appropriate as our awning is 4 metres wide.
Sorry, Peter mentioned it first

Our Kingham has the same kit in a felt bag under the bed - it contained a central rafter to stop sagging and the telescopic wind out handle for the omnistor awning.

Thanks Folks I thought it was a tad heavy for that as my previous Fiamma had an aluminium rafter
